XF 1.5 Changing /portal to just /


Well-known member
1. I'm trying to change www.safesurvival.net/portal to www.safesurvival.net

I tried route filters, but couldn't get that to work, any suggestions on how to do this?
You should be able to achieve this by changing the Index Page Route option in Basic Board Options, more details here:

2. Also how do I forward http://safesurvival.net to http://www.safesurvival.net I'm trying to avoid duplicate content, and I tried editing my .htaccess file with methods I've used in the past, but nothing worked.
Can you copy and paste the contents of your .htaccess file here so we can take a closer look?

Hi @Shazepe as @Mike has mentioned above, don't put the full URL for the index page route, just the last part. That should definitely work.

It looks like you have XenForo installed in your root folder, it's not inside a subdirectory right? So you should change the Board URL back to: http://www.safesurvival.net/
